Synopsis from IMDB. “The plot focuses on the romances of two couples upon the doomed ship. Isabella Paradine (Catherine Zeta Jones) is a wealthy woman mourning the loss of her aunt, who reignites a romance with old flame, Wynn Park (Peter Gallagher). Meanwhile, a charming ne’er do well named Jamie Perse (Mike Doyle) steals a ticket for the ship, and falls for a sweet innocent Irish girl on board. But their romance is threatened by the villainous Simon Doonan (Tim Curry), who has discovered about the ticket and makes Jamie his unwilling accomplice, as well as having sinister plans for the girl.”
Talk about some big names on a small scale movie! This is another made for TV movie but it stars Tim Curry, Catherine Zeta Jones, and Peter Gallagher. Another movie I saw after the 1997 hit that I enjoyed so much. Again, like Britannic, obviously the quality (VHS) is lacking and the special effects. But I did very much enjoy the two different love stories and Jones and Gallagher made a beautiful couple. It really doesn’t measure up to the 1997 blockbuster hit in any way so don’t go into it thinking it does – but it’s a decent story and it fills my Titanic need. Another great rental (if you can find it)!
There was a line where Molly Brown says, “There will probably be a woman president in the next 100 years.” Close – but not this 100 years.
